Abstract : This paper presents an autonomic load balancing algorithm (ALBA) which enhances resource allocation in wireless local area networks (WLAN). ALBA offers autonomic management capabilities to access points that ensure the accommodation of more user traffic and an overall network capacity improvement compared to default signal strength based connectivity. Simulations with VoIP traffic over an agglomeration of WLANs show consistent behaviour among neighbouring access points and substantial performance gain in terms of call blocking rate.
